Nolan has done something quite amazing with the Batman franchise. He has revived the series after Burton and Schumacher make a mochery with films. And with “The Dark Knight” making a billion dollars its safe to say we WILL get another Batman film, but will Nolan direct it? I know what your thinking, “OF COURSE HE COMING BACK!!!!”, but nothings official. Nolan has said that the passing of Ledger hit him hard, and he would only return if he can come up with a story that would keep him interested. Well, according to comicbookmovie.com there should be some major announcement by both Nolan and WB regarding the status:
A longtime Batman-on-film.com source has revealed that there will be official Batman 3 news from both Chris Nolan and Warner Bros come January.
According to the reliable source, the longer it takes plans to be solidify for the sequel, the less likely Nolan would return.
It seems that Warner’s will use the marketing from Nolan’s latest film Inception to spark interest in the latest Batman installment.
The source also reveals a tidbit that Nolan’s fans have been have fearing – “There’s going to be a BATMAN 3 with or without Nolan. And although they’re operating under the assumption that he will return, they do have their ducks in a row — just in case.
I know a lot of you will probably regard this as another rumor, but if you ask me I think there is some truth behind this(one clue should be is that Michael Caine didn’t say this). I know some don’t want him to return, because Nolan has said he will never use Robin as long as he is directing, which is just fine if you ask me. I’m worried, because it sounds like WB is wanting to rush the film, which always proves to be a bad idea. And another reason is because I hate it when directors don’t come back for the third film, and they always throw in a hack director as a replacement.
Do you think Nolan will return? If not, who would you like to direct the next film?
